The Home Stretch to Christmas 2011

Hey, guess what? It’s 4 days until Christmas, people! Are you ready? I have a few things left to wrap plus a whole crap-ton of baking to do on Friday. Because I intended to bake as gifts and, well, I haven’t even started. But here’s the list:

  • Spiced Rum Balls
  • White Chocolate Peppermint Bark
  • Magic Cookie Bars
  • Sugar Cookies with icing
  • Red Velvet cake with cream cheese icing

Sounds yummy, eh? The cake is for Christmas day. The company I work has this great thing where you can order “HolidayToGo” and so I ordered a prime rib and an apple pie. Plus, Man got a free ham at work. So we are totally set for Christmas dinner except for a few side items. The kiddo has requested chocolate cookies as well, so I will be making those when he gets here next week.

It’ll be a bake-a-palooza!

And once I leave work on Thursday, I will be off until January 3. I’m so excited about that. Can’t wait. I’m really looking forward to some downtime with the kid, Man and cat.

Oh and I’ve been writing too. Most days at lunch. It’s like my fingers are on fire and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the book when I’m done with that writing session.

And that’s about all I know about that. Hope you all are getting your shopping done. 🙂

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
